Who knows? The area painted was maybe 8"x4" (divided by 2 as it's an open two-cockpit arf). Even if weight was a concern, no "affordable" scale could measure it. There are 2 coats.

I agree with you
the area is not large so weight almost negligeable
the primer does not contribute strenght either but let it age before final painting as it has a habit of shrinking and a couple of weeks later out comes sanding marks and other little things where primer was thicker.
how do I know ???, does it on cars too LOL
